Bicycles

Bike transport subcategory comes in handy when you are going on vacation and you need to transport your bicycle. Also it will be useful if you bought a bike online and you have to transport it home. Another frequent reason for creating a listing in Bicycle Transport section is wanting to ship a bike as a gift to someone.

Getting the bike ready for shipping

The safest container in which you can transport a bicycle is its original package. Of course, particularly if the bike is not brand new, you can transport it without the packaging but you risk damaging more fragile parts of the vehicle (like bicycle chain). If you do not have original packaging, try to acquire a box that will be the most similar in size and shape – the less empty space left after placing the bicycle in the package the better. Before you place the bike in the package, you may want to remove all the removable parts – like lights or saddles.  Once you have removed mentioned parts, it is best to place them in separate package or at least enclose them in cardboard and then attach the elements to the bicycle frame. Additionally you should wrap the handlebars and the frame in bubble wrap (the layer of bubble wrap should be at least 2 centimeters thick. Any protruding elements (for example bolts should be secured with cardboard overlay. All of the empty space remaining in the container after placing your bicycle in has to be filled with paper, styrofoam or sponges. Filling the free space is going to minimize any shocks during transportation as the bicycle will be unable to move around in the packaging. Lastly, close the container and secure it with wide tape. 

If you would rather find a transport provider to ship your bike, you do not need to worry about providing the materials required to secure your bike for the transport – the transport provider will be able to help you with that. Furthemore, the transport provider often has access to professional packing materials which will assure that your bicycle will be moved as safely as possible.
